I'm associated with a Company registered under shops & Establishment Act under the Gujarat State. Most of our Employees are covered by Sales promotion Act and based in all over India for Field Working.
We have recently started our Branch office in Pune wherein only 1 Office staff member available. Now the query is that where should we submit the Professional Tax and Challan payment against MLWF (Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund)
Should we get recovered from the employees as per the slab defined under Gujarat State or Maharashtra State.
Looking forward for a prompt and effective reply.

Hi Krishna, Professional Tax has to be paid as per the state slab rate / Municipal Corporate slap rate, where the branch is located. Regards, Pragnaa HRCS
Dear Pragnaa,
Thanks for the reply but this is to inform that we are already paying the Professional Tax separately for the Branch that's located in Pune, Maharashtra. However, my question is about Maharashtra Labour Welfare Fund.
Because in other states where we do not have branch office we are making deductions as per the Gujarat LWF slab only. However, in the case of Pune Branch we have confusion of which state norms we must follow in LWF: Gujarat or Maharashtra?
Please resolve my query??

Dear Krishna,
Since you have established a separate branch in Maharashtra (hope, this must be registered under Shops & Establishment Act), LWF needs to be remitted as per Maharashtra slab rate.
